The City of Campbell River looks to purchase goods and services in a manner that offers the best overall value to the City. Effective procurement is an essential service in the public sector to ensure the best value is found and that purchasing decisions are made without bias or favour. It allows an equal opportunity for qualified suppliers to bid for City business and to maintain a high standard of financial stewardship. This will ensure that purchases are consistent, provide accountability and transparency by reducing ambiguity as to the goods and services that are procured using public funds.
